SimGas has invested in the involvement of local stakeholders and strategic partners throughout the process of developing our improved biogas systems for the East and Southern African market. This has led to a mutual understanding regarding the necessity to increase household biogas use through the implementation of mass-produced systems. More importantly, our investment in stakeholders has eliminated many barriers that have hindered market entry for prefabricated biogas systems in the past, such as the suspicion that Western companies develop inferior products for the African market. From possible adversaries, local NGOs have become strong advocates of the SimGas approach.
